Mark Teixeira's for real. OK, you probably didn't me to tell you that. The Rangers' superstar third base prospect has terrorized pitchers every step of his amateur and pro careers. But did you know Adam Morrissey has one of the quickest swings you'll ever see? That Kevin Cash's defense may be even better than you've heard? That Luke Hudson could help push the Reds to the top of the NL Central in 2003? You would if you headed out to Phoenix for the Arizona Fall League season.

About the time Jimmy Carter left office and Brett Myers was born, the Philadelphia Phillies were a proud organization. They had the sharpest scouts, a huge staff of men trained in Branch Rickey's maxims. Even their executives had a scouting mindset. The Phillies wrote the book on scouting: the Philadelphia Scouting Manual. Philadelphia's scouts were intensely competitive, arousing hatred and admiration. In Dollar Sign on the Muscle, Kevin Kerrane quotes one Phillies scout as saying that they were "the anti-fraternity of scouting...as well as anti-draft, anti-Bureau, anti-middle of the [freakin'] road."

Right now, the Phillies are in first place in the NL East. They're successful, but are they proud, are they an organization to fear, an organization capable of arousing resentment? Going into this season, they hadn't posted a winning record in seven years. Just a year ago, the Phillies' winning percentage was .401. They were playing like they were anti-middle of the road; they were pro-ditch. Their spike this season will likely fade before the year is over, but even if they hold on through September they are almost certain to suffer a regression next season. Their run atop the division is most likely a false spring rather than an organizational renaissance.
